1 Innovative Solutions for Successful Wireless Network Management Plan, Deploy and Troubleshoot Your Wireless Network with Fluke Networks

2 Stay Ahead of Wireless Risks Not all wireless network threats are as obvious as you might expect, and they re not all directly related to data security. While stolen data and network attacks are among the biggest wireless risks and continue to require mitigation, newer types of threats jeopardize the integrity of your wireless network and your business. Depending on the nature of your business and industry, compromises in network uptime, throughput and compliance policy can be as detrimental to your business as denial of service (DoS) attacks that bring your network operations to a halt. For example, RF congestion can arise for many reasons such as new sources of interference, high-capacity multimedia application traffic and sticky clients that overload a given access point (AP) and cause performance slowdowns and disconnects. Poor-performing networks degrade overall business processes, worker productivity and, potentially, e-commerce revenues and customer service. From a compliance standpoint, it s no secret that even a minor configuration error could send a WLAN out of compliance. For example, in the retail industry, violations of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) could put customer credit card information at serious risk and result in fines by the card issuers. Worse, a compromise could lead to expensive litigation and loss of reputation. Several other industries, including healthcare and financial organizations, have similar types of governance mandates and standards. What are the Threats? Network risks continually change as new exploits emerge, hackers grow more sophisticated, Wi-Fi networks get crowded, and industry rules about security and privacy evolve. Security. The very nature of security threats (internal and external) and how you deal with them is changing constantly. Unlike early attacks that focused on wireless network infrastructure equipment, emerging exploits target the millions of mobile client devices invading enterprise networks. Attacks also are growing more complex, employing a combination of exploit techniques over a period of time. Additionally, attackers that once had to be geographically close to your wireless LAN (WLAN) to penetrate it such as in the proverbial parking lot can now gain access from over a mile away using high-gain antennas. Performance. Threats to network performance and uptime are equally dangerous to organizations that transact business or fully depend on applications running on the wireless network. Impediments to network uptime and performance include:»» RF interference from neighboring wireless networks and non-wi-fi devices that impact wireless bandwidth, network availability and performance»» Network configuration errors that result in mismatched user access rights and policies (and possible policy violations) or less-than-optimal mobile traffic flows»» High-density network designs that fail to achieve the right balance of AP placement, signal strength (power settings) and interference mitigation Compliance. Compliance regulations further complicate your network environment design and management practices. As noted, the PCI DSS Council has specific wireless guidelines for verifying the security of the cardholder data environment. Organizations must regularly audit their networks, even if they don t formally allow wireless access to their systems, to ensure that network use is in accordance with government and business policy. Most organizations are driven by these specialized compliance regulations for their vertical segments (HIPAA, FISMA, SOX, etc.). 1

3 Solutions for the Entire Wi-Fi Lifecycle With Fluke Networks complete portfolio of wireless solutions, you can ensure the security, performance and compliance of your wireless networks amid all the changing conditions. Fluke Networks solutions span the entire WLAN lifecycle, from planning and deployment to ongoing troubleshooting and dedicated security monitoring, combating all wireless issues you face. Our comprehensive tools have been specifically designed for the pre-deployment planning, ongoing management and multifaceted security of IEEE a/b/g/n networks. Fluke Networks Wireless Portfolio Planning AirMagnet Planner AirMapper AirMagnet Enterprise 24x7 Performance & Security Deployment & Verification AirMagnet Survey Wired/WLAN Analysis Troubleshooting and Interference WLAN Test & Analysis Spectrum Analysis OptiView XG Network Analysis Tablet OneTouch AT Network Assistant AirCheck Wi-Fi Tester AirMagnet WiFi Analyzer AirMagnet VoFi Analyzer AirMedic USB AirMagnet Spectrum XT Some of the common questions that solutions from Fluke Networks can answer for you include the following: Why don t users client devices discover any Wi-Fi APs? Why are users having difficulty connecting to the WLAN or the Internet or staying connected? Is the network compliant with regulatory standards, such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, GLBA, SOX and others? Why is the wireless network not performing to expectations? What s the best strategy to migrate to n? How can I ensure the WLAN is secure? Is the WLAN BYOD ready? 2

4 Wi-Fi Planning & Design Fluke Networks delivers the industry s most accurate solutions for designing, deploying and optimizing a/b/g/n WLANs. Our expert planning and design tools ensure that your wireless network accommodates the highest possible user capacity and most stringent quality of service (QoS) demands of even time-sensitive wireless applications in the most interference-prone and challenging RF environments. AirMagnet Planner With the AirMagnet Planner wireless network-planning tool, you can create a WLAN model for any WLAN infrastructure vendor that lets you build a predictive map of Wi-Fi coverage and performance without having to physically deploy any APs. The map accounts for building materials, obstructions, AP configurations, antenna patterns and a host of other variables as it determines an optimal infrastructure layout for your specific environment. And if you are introducing n into an existing a/b/g environment, AirMagnet Planner automatically accounts for the mix of technologies in a single network and adjusts the infrastructure layout accordingly. The tool helps you define your migration strategy, whether it s a rip-and-replace or slow transitional approach. It also generates a bill of materials report and estimates costs so you can budget for exactly what you ll need. AirMagnet Planner can be purchased as a standalone product or as a fully integrated feature of AirMagnet Survey (see section below). Using AirMagnet Planner integrated with AirMagnet Survey, you have a powerful solution that combines state-of-the-art predictive modeling with real-world coverage and performance measured data. Site Survey, Deployment & Verification Site surveys are required for new installations where you need to calculate the number of APs required, determine the locations where they need to be placed and decide how they must be configured. Site surveys in existing installations, by contrast, verify the number of APs required versus the number actually deployed and validate their location and configuration to ensure optimal coverage and performance. Site surveys are also critical in ongoing network optimization. As new users join the shared-access WLAN, for example, it becomes important to ensure that a sufficient number of APs are deployed to provide the required network capacity and coverage. Real-time applications like voice typically have more stringent requirements for signal values, coverage overlap, coverage from multiple APs and so forth. Site surveys help verify the network s readiness for the new application. Surveys can be conducted manually, by walking around a building, inside and out, and driving the city streets to record coverage, congestion and performance data. However, automating the process with software tools simplifies and accelerates the pre-deployment design and post-deployment verification of your WLAN. Using full-featured wireless site survey software can save an enormous amount of time, money and frustration compared to manual or paper-based site survey techniques. 3

5 AirMapper App With the recent Wi-Fi explosion and the ever-growing BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) phenomenon, IT groups within organizations face the constant challenge of flooded network resources by foreign devices (smartphones, tablets, phablets, e-readers, etc.). IT staff members must find the delicate balance between meeting the needs of the users with the best practices defined by the organization s policies for Wi-Fi security and performance. User expectations of seamless mobility and superior performance on their own devices are not what IT staff signed up for. The AirMapper app is the most accurate and complete heat-map based Wi-Fi network design and deployment solution available on the Android platform.

As an all-in-one, wired and Wi-Fi solution, all the power of Air- Magnet WifiAnalyzer, Spectrum XT and Survey is available on the OptiView platform. Implement 24x7 Wireless Security Monitoring Fluke Networks AirMagnet solutions provide common intelligence that is a prerequisite for real control over Wi-Fi security, performance and compliance. Unlike the periodic self-monitoring found in most modern APs, Fluke Networks AirMagnet solutions are based on active, firsthand observation of the entire wireless environment. For example, in the 60 seconds between typical systems AP snapshots, AirMagnet could see a hacker compromise an end-user s computer and spoof that user s identity. AirMagnet could then track all the attacker s packets and begin to remediate the threat, all in that 60-second window. Other passive monitoring solutions would overlook the threat and would be unable to provide the details needed to help staff know what actually happened. Not all wireless network threats are as obvious as you might expect, and they re not all directly related to data security. While stolen data and network attacks are among the biggest wireless risks and continue to require mitigation, newer types of threats jeopardize the integrity of your wireless network and your business. AirWISE Analysis Engine The unique technology underpinning every AirMagnet solution AirWISE is the intelligent Wi-Fi analysis engine that translates raw wireless data collected by Fluke Networks AirMagnet solutions into intelligent, actionable results. AirWISE detects and processes wireless events that can impact security, performance and compliance. It then describes them for users in easy-to-understand but detailed terms and prioritizes the most threatening or important issues. It also drives readiness verification for WLAN device and application requirements. AirWISE presents deep background information on each wireless issue, making it easy for networking technicians to deploy and maintain wireless networks with the same confidence as their wired networks. AirWISE prescribes the best solution for each issue, so you get concrete guidance on solving wireless problems. 10

12 Depending on the nature of your business and industry, compromises in network uptime, throughput and compliance policy can be as detrimental to your business as denial of service (DoS) attacks that bring your network operations to a halt. For example, RF congestion can arise for many reasons such as new sources of interference, high-capacity multimedia application traffic and sticky clients that overload a given access point (AP) and cause performance slowdowns and disconnects. Poor-performing networks degrade overall business processes, worker productivity and, potentially, e-commerce revenues and customer service. From a compliance standpoint, it s no secret that even a minor configuration error could send a WLAN out of compliance. For example, in the retail industry, violations of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) could put customer credit card information at serious risk and result in fines by the card issuers. Worse, a compromise could lead to expensive litigation and loss of reputation. Several other industries, including healthcare and financial organizations, have similar types of governance mandates and standards. What are the Threats?

13 Compliance. Compliance regulations further complicate your network environment design and management practices. As noted, the PCI DSS Council has specific wireless guidelines for verifying the security of the cardholder data environment. Organizations must regularly audit their networks, even if they don t formally allow wireless access to their systems, to ensure that network use is in accordance with government and business policy. Most organizations are driven by these specialized compliance regulations for their vertical segments (HIPAA, FISMA, SOX, etc.) Keeping a network secure requires you to make quick decisions based on a complete set of data from the real-world environment. This is precisely what Fluke Networks solutions provide: direct, deep and active analysis of everything in the WLAN. AirMagnet Enterprise AirMagnet Enterprise centralized wireless intrusion detection/prevention system (WIDS/WIPS) defends your wireless environment by automatically detecting, blocking, tracing and mapping any threat on all Wi-Fi channels. It contains an unmatched suite of event alerting, escalation, remote troubleshooting, forensic analysis and professional PCI and other policy compliance reporting. The end result is a unified system that scans your environment 100% of the time to ensure it is performing safely and securely and is meeting the needs of your users and applications. In addition to rich security features, AirMagnet Enterprise constantly monitors the health of the WLAN and RF environment to proactively detect evolving problems that can lead to network interruption. The system detects issues, gives users remediation advice and includes active remote tools to troubleshoot the issue. This allows staff to avoid network downtime and vastly reduces the time-to-fix for any outage, leading to greater uptime, better performance and overall higher end-user satisfaction. AirMagnet Enterprise sensors distributed throughout the environment collect and analyze data, RF conditions and events. More than 1,000 sensors can be supported through a single centralized server in the data center. Analysis traffic consumes minimal WAN bandwidth, because processing takes place locally at the sensor level. Each sensor continues to enforce the security policy even if the WAN connection to the server is lost for more than 24 hours. The server then correlates the results processed by the distributed sensors and displays them on a network management system that can be used on any laptop or desktop, allowing staff to investigate and protect the network from any remote site (see diagram). AirMagnet Enterprise allows IT staff to easily detect devices and classify them. It is important to have visibility into the smart devices on your network and be able to differentiate between a smart device and a regular station. This will save hours of troubleshooting by being able to immediately identify those BYODs that are rogue. 12
